New Hampshire International Speedway is one of the most unusual tracks on the Nextel Cup Series. How unusual? The track has been described as "Martinsville on steroids." Its roots in New England racing go back to 1964, when Bob Bahre acquired a track in Oxford, Maine, which he and his son, Gary, operated until 1986.




Track Facts
Banking/Turns: 12° turns, 2° straights
Distance: 1.058 miles

Flash is on a roll, but 47 points back is tough to make up.

Hornish is listed as *NE*

HOWEVER, according to the PDF *Race Notes* on your team page, he WILL be awarded any race points he earns Sunday.

I can top that. I had a driver in my line-up (Hornish) that isn’t even racing...

And speaking of Denny - wrong tire pressure in your tires for qualifying? Gees Louise I’ve never heard of that before.

Good work, Norm.

Heading south to Kentucky tomorrow for the Nationwide race.
It’s football weather here in the midwest - probably the first time I’ve been at Ky without risking heat stroke.

A third-party feed that failed to
show Hornish as entered until
race time at Michigan earlier this
season created a lot of confusion,
but when the smoke
cleared he was awarded race
points. This week, he is trying
to make life difficult again by
staying in Kentucky to concentrate
on his day job*, but he
will race on Sunday and he will
earn points.

Looks like we are losing hope of catching happydogx2. I am chasing from far behind. I can hear those hounds chasing a deer way off in the distance. In the meantime I got sprayed by a skunk a few times.

Thanks, Roccus. So it’ll be another “start in the rear” since he didn’t drive the car in qualifying. I’ll probably stick w/Vickers.

You know it’s Fall when the drivers are going to practice and it’s 6:15am and dark on the West Coast. Watched most of the truck race last night and wonder - are there always so many wrecks in one of those races? Not many fans there; I just can’t feel the love for NASCAR truck racing.

We’ll see, we’ll see.
I’ve got old New Hampshire photos rotating thru on the screen saver and I’m getting tinglings to go to another race. The spirit is willing but the body is weak. Oh, never mind, I just had to pee.

The good news is that the weather outlook has improved for tomorrows race. We might get this puppy in after all.

Yeah, six outa the top 7 spots. Chevy’s do have 8-13 though. Mrs. Happydog has graduated and gotten her Mickey Mouse ears at the Disney Institue in Florida. She’s worried about her connections in Denver - if she doesn’t make them she’s stuck ‘til tomorrow. Paging MtnClimber.....

I’ve probably got a better shot then Jeff Gordon winning the championship but it ain’t over ‘til the yodeling stops in the Rockies. I’ll get w/Roccus if that happens but you’d better get with N.R. cause someone has to put these threads together.

Would you believe that Traegerized Salmon is on the race menu for tomorrow and who or whom is going to have their chase chances dashed by crash or mechanical? My sleeper pick to win is K.K.

Ah Vox, you take the best photos. When do we eat??

Salmon is good but there is nothing to compare with ribs cooked on a Traeger. Next week we’ll try a Brisket which gets great reviews from Traeger folks.

Cool weather but no rain forecast for race time..
